The heavy duty, heavily ribbed Meehanite cast iron bed is designed to absorb extreme cutting forces ensuring high rigidity and stability of the machine base.
The table is manufactured from high tensile Meehanite cast iron. It supports the part weight with a hydrostatic thrust bearing and radial centering is achieved by a double row, high-precision cylindrical roller bearing to resist heavy duty cutting loads in any direction. The table is equipped with hydraulic clamping device actuated by direct action bronze pistons.
Box type columns and top beam offer high rigidity. Slide ways on columns are precision ground. The positioning racks, located on each column, are precision ground to ensure superior leveling accuracy between the positioning hooks and racks.
The cross rail elevates in 200mm increments to achieve high squareness between the ram and the cross rail.
The box type cross rail is manufactured from high tensile Meehanite cast iron for maximum resistance to static, dynamic, torsion, and bending stresses. The heavily walled and multi ribbed design allows low heat transference to retain good thermal stability. Slide ways are high frequency heat treated and precision ground. The saddle slide ways are coated with aluminum bronze which has a constant friction coefficient at high/low feed rates, ensuring smooth traverse and accurate positioning control.
The rapid feed rate for the cross rail is up to 400mm/min. The mechanical locking device prevents the cross rail from dropping in case of a sudden power failure. If power failure occurs, the device actuates instantly to provide mechanical locking to the cross rail.
Dual drive system provides an output of 226 kW (continuous rating). Each motor is coupled with a dual speed planetary gearbox which ensures that the input energy is transmitted into high torque at low speeds and high power at high speeds, making the machine ideal for machining all types of material.
Maximum achievable torque of the spindle is 270.000 Nm; maximum table speed is 50 RPM.
MILLING / DRILLING SPINDLE
The live spindle provides an output of 37kW (continuous rating). A dual speed gearbox is integrated in-line between a water cooled motor and a spindle inside the ram. This compact, light-weight design matches the latest spindle drive motor technology. Maximum achievable torque of the live spindle is 1050 Nm; maximum speed is 3000 RPM.
High precision C-Axis positioning is achieved by driving one drive in one direction rotating the crown gear, while the other drive is rotated in the opposite direction. This applies a counterforce, which preloads the helical drive removing any backlash from the system.
The heavy duty rail head is a one piece high quality Meehanite cast iron designed to ensure high rigidity and stability under extreme cutting conditions.
The work head moves along the cross rail guideways by a servomotor driven ballscrew, precision ground IT3 class, coupled with a planetary gearbox for servomotor. Since the power is distributed to three planetary gears of the gearbox, thereby distributing the forces evenly, this allows a very compact design with high power density.
The special design ram is made of high quality forged steel (400 x 400) to achieve resistance to static, dynamic, torsion and bending stresses.
The ram slide ways are high frequency heat treated and precision ground. The ram is driven thru an IT3 precision class ground ballscrew by a servomotor coupled with a planetary gearbox.
The main operations are accomplished using the control panel, the auxiliary control desk, the control desk or the CNC equipment. The table rotation, the feeds of the work head (CNC operations) panel is performed using the control desks. The auxiliary control desks are used for the manual lubrication, the current movement of the control panel.
The control central desk ensures the control of the rail head the cross-rail movement and can also signal the possible damages. The machine has suitable safety devices to provide protection to the operator and the machine against all possible operational and machinery failures.
AUTOMATIC TOOL CHANGER

OPERATOR PLATFORM - OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
The machine is provided with one operator platform located on the cross rail to cover total turning height. It can accommodate the full travel of the working head.
CHIP EVACUATION SYSTEM
The table is surrounded by a gutter type system that allows the chips and coolant to fall unobstructed away from the machining area into one belt type chip conveyor located in front of the machine bed below the table and the drive mechanisms.
The measuring systems for the axes are either optical scales, which are pressurized with a dedicated unit of purified compressed air, or rotary encoders.
• Singular linear scales for each of the X and Z-axes.
• Angle encoder for the C-axis and rotary encoder for main and live spindles orientation.
• Lubrication System
An independent oil recovery and filtering system supplies hydrostatic lubrication to the table, with safety pressure switches. Automatic lubrication of the machines guideways is carried out on continuous cycle by independent motor-driven pump, complete with filter and safety pressure switch. The oil temperature is stabilized by the PLC controlled cooling circuit.
The coolant system is a combination external flood with output at the spindle front and the internal output through spindle. . A 2000-liter tank with an electro-pump for circuits feeding is supplied. The circulation filtering system is comprised of two filtering stages, a pre-filter and two fine filter cartridges, with clogging indicator.
• Checking devices for coolant levels in the tank are provided.
• External flood coolant is delivered by swinging nozzles at the front of the ram.
